Neo-Nazi Group Met By Vocal Protestors At County Courthouse Rally

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Several dozen members of a Neo-Nazi group were met by a larger number of protestors who mainly drowned out their message at the Hamilton County Courthouse on Saturday afternoon.

The courthouse square was ringed by police during the rally, and the two vocal opposing sides were kept apart.

The group arrived at the County Parking Garage and could be heard with a war cry as they prepared to march across Walnut Street. They came out carrying a National Socialist Movement banner as well as a number of flags, including some with Nazi symbolism.

The group stayed for a short time at a landing on the Walnut Street side before going to the south lawn of the courthouse, where members of the Occupy Chattanooga group camped out for months earlier.

They marched while waving flags as the designed rally spot, then several leaders took turns at speech making.

Those across the street at Oak and Georgia Avenue mainly succeeded in drowning out the message with cries of "Nazis, go home" and other phrases.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty, Even Athletes

From reading Randy Smith's column on the lawsuit against UT it is pretty evident that he never took a legal course in his life. I was under the impression that in this country one was innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. It appears this no longer applies to athletes(particularly black athletes) in the U.S. in 2016. I have always said that if I am picked for jury duty ... (click for more)
